When Senator Chiz Escudero proposed to Heart Evangelista and they started planning their wedding for next year, the actress was very vocal in saying she doesn’t want to have a child until she’s 35 years old.
However, she changed her mind after a visit from the doctor. Last year, the doctors found a cyst outside her uterus and although it was not a hindrance for her to have a baby and she was eventually cleared from it, the doctor told her to think about having a child earlier because complications may arise once she’s older.
Heart realized she doesn’t have to think about herself and instead, she should be welcome to the idea of having a baby now that she is healthy. She may have a baby once she’s 31 or 32 years old already. Heart is now 29 years old.
Senator Chiz was happy with Heart’s decision because he really wants to have a baby with the actress. The senator will celebrate his 45th birthday on October 10.
The senator was excited with the possibility of having Heart’s baby, she said. Senator Chiz already has two children with his ex-wife Christine Flores.
Heart is not yet sure if they will be blessed immediately with a baby since they will be going back to work after their wedding on February 15 next year.
Senator Chiz is still busy because Congress has yet to take a break. After the wedding, Heart has a soap to shoot. Also, she might be doing a movie with Star Cinema.
Heart and Senator Chiz have already finalized their wedding entourage. Although she cannot give details, she said that there are 15 pairs of principal sponsors and 14 pairs of bridesmaids. They will also have junior groomsmen and bridesmaids.
Her sister, Camille Ongpauco, is the maid-of-honor while her two other sisters are the matrons-of-honor.
Heart is not yet sure if her parents, Rod and Cecile Ongpauco, will attend her wedding since they are not ready to see her walk down the aisle. It can be remembered that Heart’s parents disapproved of Senator Chiz and publicly called on him to break his relationship with their daughter.
However, Heart and her parents have since reconciled, and the actress is hopeful they will find it in their hearts to attend her wedding in Balesin Island.
In fact, Cecile is now in the States to look for Heart’s wedding shoes. It’s good that she has that involvement already, the actress said.
Her father told her that they should focus on fixing their relationship first as father and daughter before anything else. He does not want to promise that he will be there in her wedding.
Senator Chiz wants to follow the tradition of “pamamanhikan,” but Heart’s parents are not ready for that. He talks to her sisters how he can make a step forward to Heart’s parents, but Rod already gave them his go-signal to get married.
“May blessing na siya na magpakasal, hindi na raw na makapamanhikan.”
The senator remains hopeful that he can formally ask for Heart’s hand from her parents. Heart, on the other hand, doesn’t want to force things because an issue may crop up again.
